TIGARD, Ore. (AP) - A Sherwood man who wears a head scarf says a TriMet driver asked him, “How’s the jihad going for you?”

The man, Yassin Ibn Mika’il, has filed a complaint with the transit agency accusing the driver of discriminating against him because he is a Muslim.

TriMet told KPTV (https://bit.ly/1AGe6WH ) it takes the matter very seriously and is conducting an internal investigation.

Ibn Mika’il says he’s been riding TriMet for 25 years and the Aug. 29 incident in Tigard is the first problem he’s encountered.
